Married Charles Mitten ALMOND
Living in Cobdogla, SA at time of her death

Barmera, February 18.
Great sympathy is extended to the relatives of Mrs. C. M. Almond, who passed away in the Hutchinson Private Hospital, Gawler, on February 6. Mrs. Almond had left her home at Cobdogla on the previous Monday to consult her doctor at Gawler, who finding a serious operation imperative
had sent for Mr. Almond. The operation was not successful and she passed away on the fourth day after.
The passing of Mrs. Almond has removed a splendid woman from the neighbourhood, and many mourn a personal loss. As Sister Milne she served with the Australian Nurses in the South African war, and her nursing skill has always been eagerly availed of. Many an anxious mother has appreciated the comforting presence of this capable woman at he bedside of a sick child. To her friends her optimism and sense of humour made her a most entertaining conversationalist. Despite her many years of physical affliction, her back was injured many years ago through lifting alone, a disabled patient, the world was made a better place to live in because of her influence. Members of the Barmera Literary Society remember with great interest two articles presented by Mrs. Almond at special sessions of that body. The society's manuscript magazine contained her "Impressions of South Africa during the Boer War" which proved her to be possessed of literary ability of no mean order. At the Ladies' Evening of 1927 she gave another cleverly written contribution "a Trip to Santa Cruz." Although she had no children of her own, she was adored by her many nieces and nephews, one of whom Scout Master Bert Ayling, has lived with Mr. and Mrs. Almond for many years.
Mrs. Ayling is spending a few weeks at Cobdogla with Mr. Almond and her son, and the sympathy of the neighbourhood goes out to them.
Mrs. Darnley Naylor, wife of Pro fessor Darnley Naylor, who was a life-long friend of Mrs. Almond, before leaving for England last year, spoke in sincere terms of her great affection for her.
